On Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2017, The University of Maine hosted a Diversity Dialogue. The program was an opportunity to openly discuss topics surrounding diversity between the general public, UMaine students and staff and guests from the Tree Street Youths program from the Lewiston-Auburn area. This event was hosted by the College of Education and Human Development. The mission of Tree Street Youth is “to support the youth of Lewiston-Auburn through programs rooted in academics, the arts, and athletics in a safe space that encourages healthy physical, social, emotional, and academic development while building unity across lines of difference.” The program has served over 800 students. The majority of students that attended from Tree Street youths were refugees or asylum seekers from African countries.
